Growing up, I slept on a twin-sized iron daybed with a roll-out, pop-up trundle. While I often begrudged it because my bedding options were much more limited (the amount of awful granny-looking bed-in-a-bags my mom and I had to shuffle through to land on anything that felt age-appropriate still haunts me), it was sleepover headquarters at my house. Having a trundle meant I had a built-in guest bed and none of my friends ever had to bring over a sleeping bag (or cram into my tiny twin with me). Now, as an adult, I can also see their value not just for a kid or teen’s bedroom, but as a fantastic small-space solution for studios and guests rooms. No matter your needs, chances are a trundle bed is a piece you’ll find good use for. From traditional wrought iron picks to luxe upholstered beds, we scoured our favorite retailers and rounded up 10 of the best trundle beds on the market today.

1 / 10
West Elm

Twill upholstery on an engineered wood frame makes this West Elm daybed sturdy (plus the listing mentions its contract grade, which means it can likely take a beating). The price includes both mattresses, which makes this bed far more affordable than the price tag suggests.

2 / 10
was $379.38

One of the most affordable options on our list, this twin bed frame with a roll-out trundle (mattresses sold separately) is a real steal of a deal.

3 / 10
was $239.99

Bringing to mind fond memories of childhood, this bed reminds us so much of the trundle beds many of us grew up with. Reviewers note that it's easy to put together and looks much better in person which is always a win.

4 / 10

This chic, upholstered twin works equally as a regular bed or a daybed, and we love the nailhead trim detail. The wheeled trundle is not attached to the bed so you could move it to another space to give each sleeper more privacy.

Raymour & Flanigan
was $759.90

Trundle daybeds that look like a sofa are a fantastic solution for studios, small spaces, and discreet guest rooms. During the day, use it as a sofa for lounging and at night, use it as a normal bed (above or below or both!).

6 / 10

Also available in a sleek black and bright white, this daybed is sweet enough to work in a kids' room but also grown-up enough to live in a guest bedroom or office.

7 / 10
was $658.34

We love the simple brown modern frame of this daybed. Slight cutouts make rolling the trundle out easy without worrying about slamming your fingers.

8 / 10
was $899.00

A backless Chesterfield is a super posh way (without the bulk) to add extra guest quarters in any room of your home. It would also be lovely in a living room.

9 / 10
was $506.00

The trellis frame on the Ekstrom daybed is classic yet contemporary at the same time. Bonus points for coming in both black and white.

10 / 10

One of our favorite picks is this royally stunning pick from Baxton Studio. This bed's velvet upholstery, tufted back, and beautiful silhouette is grown up and super chic.
